Davies Creek Falls, a magnificent waterfall cascading over huge granite boulders; pleasant camping spots and purpose-built mountain bike tracks are features of these national parks. You can swim in crystal clear waters, or if you feel like an adventure you can walk 2km up the creek to the Davies Creek Falls. This is an impressive waterfall out of the many we have here in Far North Queensland, that crashes over the edge of a granite cliff.
If you are travelling from Cairns, take the Captain Cook Highway and then the Kennedy Highway up the Kuranda Range. From Kuranda, then drive another 21km and turn left on to Davies Creek Road. The campground is about 6.5km further on, along this road you get to see a bit of the 'Dry Aussie Outback' with tall eucalyptus trees (watch out for the drop bears), and many termite hills made from red dirt.
Davies Creek is a wonderful family day outing full of fun and adventure. So pack a picnic, grab your swimmers and some sunscreen and head on up!Back
